this was not just a popular uprising. in libya, there was no record of popular uprising against the united states. in fact, the united states is highly regarded in most of libya, and particularly in benghazi, this ambassador was incredibly popular in benghazi. secondly, they were well-armed and well-executed attack. it all the markings of a military-style attack. what's most troubling is one of narratives the obama campaign has laid out is bin laden is dead. they bragged about that forever and al qaeda is in retreat. and you start to wonder, did they basically say do not allow any story to emerge that counters that narrative? is that why for two weeks they total us the libyan incident in benghazi was a popular uprising and not a terrorist attack teak because it ran counter to their campaign narrative. i hope that's not true. you said early on in any presidency there's a moment truth. this president had one in iran. after the false elections there, the people took to the streets, and the president refused to line up with the green revolution there. he said he wasn't going to get involved in iran s

about restoring that unipolar moment for the united states, where the u.s. was the preeminent power around the world and basically had no challengers. and we had that for a while really between the collapse of the soviet union and the beginning of 9/11. what you hear from president obama is something different. what you hear is we're in a different age now. we've got to pull back from these wars. we have to build coalitions. and countries that have a greater interest in solving a problem like libya or syria have to put skin in the game first. the u.s. will be there to back them up. that's a very different concept. it's one of sort sharing power, building coalitions. now, you heard mr. romney say at various points he, too, would build coalitions, and i'm sure he would. but the question is does the world view mr. romney as somebody who wants to bring back america allegation the sole superpower? do they view president obama as somebody who can actually engage the rest of the world? what he promised in 2008, he's governed more through drone strikes, through cyber-attacks on iran, throug
